Mother Nature

16 August 2021

To acknowledge our Women’s Day month as well a the beautiful natural environment of not only the White River region but our entire beautiful country, we chose a theme that links any aspects of the feminine with the South African natural world. This offered the TPG artists the opportunity for wide interpretation.

The Printing Girls

Our 2020 Art Room exhibition featured a project called Positive Escape - three months into lockdown, each artist created a printed image on 20 x20 cm paper that showed one positive way that they were coping with lockdown. This year, the mood has shifted. Now 18 months into the pandemic, many have had to deal with illness and/or the loss of close ones, and there is a different zeitgeist. This (includes a sense of being displaced from nature. We came up with the concept of eco-longing, an effect experienced by many folk due to the restrictions of lockdown. We asked each TPG artist to represent a way that they feel this disconnection. Their resulting responses created a wonderful variety of images, mostly of nature, that ranged from the dream-like and nostalgic, through to the quirky mostly of nature, that ranged from the dream-like and nostalgic, through to the quirky and abstract.

 

The Printing Girls' membership has almost doubled this year, and here, almost 50 TPG artists from The Printing Girls participated in the project

The Daphne Project

7 August 2021

The Printing Girls 

Here we revisit one of the original associations between woman and nature - the Greek myth of Daphne. According to this myth, Daphne was well-known for her exceptional beauty. She had taken a vow of chastity to enable her to live in woodlands as a huntress and avoid the trappings of society and the restrictions of marriage. But she was pursued one day by a lustful Apollo. Just before he captured her, in a state of exhaustion she prayed to the Goddess Gaia – Mother Earth - for rescue and was metamorphosed into a laurel tree. Daphne subsequently lost her voice and the only sound she could make was by rustling her leaves.

Apollo used his power of eternal youth to turn the laurel into an evergreen tree. He broke off a branch and a laurel branch is always associated with him in mythological imagery. This myth is timeless so still has many possibilities for interpretation. Recently, it has been picked up by the #MeToo movement.
